Apago's staff has analyzed thousands of PDF documents created from hundreds of applications. This expertise is reflected in the more than 100 lossless optimizations in PDF Enhancer for removing unnecessary objects from PDF files to make these files smaller and easier to handle in high volume environments.
In addition, PDF Enhancer offers users the ability to remove specific elements of a PDF that aren't appropriate for a particular usage - such as bookmarks or thumbnails from a press-ready document.
PDF Enhancer also provides full control over your Annotations and Form Fields. You can clean them up (to reduce the file size while keeping them fully functional), remove them, flatten them or leave them unchanged. You'll find that PDF Enhancer does a better job of flattening annotations than any other tool on the market!
PDF Enhancer is able to flatten Layers (Optional Content Groups). Flattening is performed in a more efficient and technically accurate fashion than competing
PDF Enhancer includes the ability to have all fully embedded fonts automatically subset. You can even convert all fonts to Type 3 outline fonts that might not make your PDF smaller but will make it more reliable since some older systems may not handle new fonts properly.
Optimizing images used in a PDF
PDF Enhancer allows you to downsample and recompress the images within the PDF document for additional file size reduction.
Choose whether to use a lossless compression algorithm such as Flate/Zip or a lossy one such as JPEG or JPEG2000 - or allow PDF Enhancer to just "do the right thing" by enabling the "Protect screenshots and synthetic images" option. This option chooses the best lossless compression for images with a set number of colors to prevent image degradation that often occurs with synthetic images using lossy compression methods.
If you have a lot of black & white scanned documents, you will love PDF Enhancer's support for the new JBIG2 algorithm which will reduce your documents over 80%!
